Loved it! Lovely welcome by owners with cake and fizz waiting for us. Storm Ciara didnt stop us and provided us with some exhilarating walks! The cottage was very cosy with the log burner used to full effect and central heating. The nearby pub was great and welcoming in Castleton (5 min walk). Will definitely be back.

A comfortable cottage on the edge of a friendly village. The cottage was well fitted out and had all you needed for a comfortable stay. The log burner was the main draw for us and the fact its dog friendly, with a great closed in garden. There is a terrace with a great view, seating and BBQ. Lovely warm greeting on arrival and plenty of informationRead more available to make the most of our stay. Thanks Ian and Nav. Hide

What a wonderful cottage to stay at, the outside is rustic and beautiful to look at with perfect views across the back garden. All home comforts and amenities we required for 3 days of living and eating. The hosts live next door who were very friendly, greeting us as we arrived and advised on areas to visit/eat and drink.

We were at Blakey View at the end of August when the weather became quite hot, but the cottage was lovely and cool inside. Joanne and Michael were friendly and nice without being intrusive.

Cosy cottage for two in a good location with very good views and garden with decking, which is enclosed making it safe for a dog. Very friendly locals with excellent local pub and tea room both of which were dog friendly. Very welcoming proprietor.

Reviewed by Sarah 19th July 2019

The cottage is a small but perfectly designed space for two people ( and a dog), with the added benefit of outside space to enjoy the country views. The location of the cottage on a quiet lane off the main road means it is very peaceful, whilst being in the village means the shop and the pub are within a 3 minute walk.

Great cottage with fabulous views and good local amenities. Cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Friendly owner lives next door with a warm welcome. Good location, lots to see and plenty of walking and good pubs!

The North Yorkshire Moors is a fabulous area. One we intend to return to. This clean cottage has some of the best views and it is ideally situated for walks, pubs and beautiful bays.

The cottage has been refurbished to a high specification, has a lovely back garden and amazing view along the valley. Joe and her family were lovely and very helpful (they live next door) and she even baked us a cake on arrival. It's a beautiful part of the world and the village is nice, with a good pub, a tea room (nice cooked breakfasts!) and a CRead moreo-op. It's definitely worth a drive up to Danby Beacon, up on the moors from Danby village. We went at sunset and the 360 views were incredible. Hide
